Description

Both on the platform and box versions I'm unable to call the partymode function.
Normally one can call the party mode with a specific music playlist like this:

In the GUI using builtin:
PlayerControl( PartyMode(path/playlist.xsp ))

In python:
xbmc.executebuiltin('PlayerControl( PartyMode(path/playlist.xsp) )')

where 'path/playlist.xsp' is the location of the xsp file.

The partymode function seems te be called correctly see log details:

11:59:17 T:13140 M:1303724032 INFO: PARTY MODE MANAGER: Registering filter:[WHERE (strTitle LIKE '%love%')]
11:59:18 T:13140 M:1303773184 ERROR: PARTY MODE MANAGER: Party mode found no matching songs. Aborting.

But it always results in an empty playlist thus not playing any files.

It seems that the partymode function is not up to date with the current boxee db and needs some updates.

I want to incorporate this in my music app, but I can imagine that other users would like simular support!

A fix would be much appreciated!

XBMC function that was never officially supported by Boxee. Not sure if it should be working or not.
